As if the post title didn’t give it away, here’s another of my favorite songs:
#24 Supermassive Black Hole, Muse
Okay, so maybe Muse is on your list of favorites. Maybe you don’t care for conspiracy theorist, British rockers. Or, maybe you’re wondering why on earth I’m bringing Greek mythology into my list of faves.
Greek mythology. You know. The muses? Ba-da bing! Er, nevermind.
So anyway, Supermassive Black Hole wasn’t the first Muse song I ever heard, but it was the first Muse song that I ever heard, knowing that it was Muse that was playing it. Does that make sense or am I blogging in circles again? Let’s recap: Had heard Muse songs before. Didn’t know they were done by Muse. Supermassive Black Hole sought out because it was done by Muse = my official introduction to the band.
Actually (and you’re going to cringe), Supermassive Black Hole was sought out by myself because I’d seen the list of songs for the very first Twilight movie soundtrack online and had no idea what the song sounded like. Needless to say, I was curious.
I found it easily on their Black Holes and Revelations album, and once I downloaded it, I was over the moon at how different and how ground-breaking they were (and still are). Supermassive Black Hole quickly became one of my favorite songs, and though I’ve listened to it a ba-zillion times, it still never ceases to disappoint me, and it’s one of my favorite songs to rock out to.
What is one (or some) of your favorite songs?
P.S. Don’tcha love music videos that look like the band was on an acid trip? Bizarre…
